Huawei acquires a seat in the Kubernetes Steering Committee

3 Nov 2017 San Francisco - Huawei has acquired a seat in the Kubernetes Steering Committee. Huawei stands out from the 15 candidate companies and organisations - there were 20 candidates nominated in total - and secures a seat in the newly founded Steering Committee.

Huawei is the first Chinese vendor to ever win a seat in the technical committee in the open source container field. As testament to Huawei's strong influence in the Kubernetes Community, this nomination and success show their acknowledgement of Huawei's continuous contribution to the open source container field.

Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and operations of container applications. The Kubernetes Steering Committee is the highest technical decision-making organisation in the Kubernetes Community and has 13 seats in total. Six candidates won in the first Steering Committee Election, and they will be joining the members of the Bootstrap Governance Committee on the newly formed Kubernetes Steering Committee. Founding the Steering Committee is an important step to optimizing the Kubernetes governance and will lead Kubernetes to bigger success.

Huawei has been a core member of the Kubernetes community since its establishment and currently holds five maintainer's seats. Huawei claims the top spot among Chinese vendors in terms of contribution to the Kubernetes Community. According to statistics from CNCF Bitergia Analytics, Huawei's contribution ranks no. 1 in China and no. 5 globally in terms of Commits. In addition, Huawei actively participates in more than 10 Kubernetes Special Interest Groups - SIGs responsible for developing roadmaps and determining technical directions for sub-domains, including Federation, Architecture, and Auth. Working as one of the first authenticated Kubernetes Certified Service Providers (KCSPs), Huawei also takes part in discussion and design in three Working Groups - focusing on major cross-SIG feature design, such as Resource Management and Container Policy.

"Rapid development of Cloud-native applications drives more and more customers to build PaaS platforms and services based on Kubernetes", commented Jiang Xiaoli, General Manager of Huawei's Basic Cloud Service & AI Service Ecosystem. "Adhering to the strategy of basing on open source, introducing enhancements to open source, and making contributions to open source, Huawei will devote more efforts into the Kubernetes Community and carry out joint innovations with its partners. Together, we can promote commercial utilization of the community's innovations and enable successful digital transformation of customers."
